We report on a simple yet efficient approach to fabricate soft piezoresistive pressure sensors using copper nanowires-based aerogels. The sensors exhibit excellent sensitivity and durability and can be easily scalable to form large-area sensing matrix for pressure mapping. This opens a low-cost strategy to wearable biomedical sensors.
